Hen Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) in her full breeding plumage. The drake Wood Duck is celebrated as one of the most beautiful ducks in the world. So it is only fitting that he should have such a beautiful mate. Photographed April 4, 2015 from a very remote section of Brick Pond in Owego, NY. Canon 7D Mk II using a 500mm IS II lens and 1.4x teleconverter on a tripod.
